    AATTHHLLEETTIICC TTRRAAIINNEERR FFAACCTT SSHHEEEETT History The Minnesota Legislature enacted a law in 1993 establishing a registration system for athletic trainers. The Board of Medical Practice enforces the requirements of the athletic trainer licensure system and provides information to consumers and other interested persons. Athletic Trainers Advisory Council The Athletic Trainers Advisory Council is appointed by the Board of Medical Practice to advise the Board on issues regarding athletic trainer licensure standards, enforcement of rules, and complaint review. The Council is composed of three athletic trainers (one who is also a physical therapist), two physicians with expertise in athletic training and sports medicine, one chiropractor with experience in athletic training and sports injuries, and two public members. Licensure Required Non-licensed individuals are prohibited from using the words or letters registered athletic trainer, licensed athletic trainer, Minnesota registered athletic trainer, athletic trainer, AT, LAT, ATR or any other words, letters, abbreviations, or insignia indicating or implying that the individual is an athletic trainer. A student attending a college or university athletic training program must be identified as an “athletic training student.” Non-licensed individuals holding themselves out as an athletic trainer are guilty of a misdemeanor. Licensure Requirements To establish eligibility for licensure, an applicant must be currently certified by the Board of Certification (BOC) for the Athletic Trainer. Scope of Practice The athletic trainers evaluate and treat athletic injuries according to protocols established by the primary physician. The protocol must be updated annually at renewal time. The athletic trainer must refer patients with a medical condition beyond the athletic trainer's scope of practice to an appropriate caregiver per protocol established by the supervising physician. Continuing Education An athletic trainer shall meet the professional development requirements of the BOC in order to maintain BOC certification. Renewal Cycle Licensure must be renewed annually on or before July 1 of each year. Renewal notices are sent approximately 45 days prior to expiration. It is the athletic trainer's responsibility to keep the Board advised of their current address. If any part of this Fact Sheet conflicts with the Minnesota rules or laws, the rules or laws take precedence. It is your responsibility to understand and comply with the regulations. Please call the Board offices if you have any questions.
